In Hearts Wake Announce 2017 National Tour, Drop New Song ‘Warcry’

After fooling fans with a cheeky April Fool’s joke, Byron Bay metalcore crew In Hearts Wake have announced their one and only legit Aussie tour of 2017, which will see them play some of their biggest shows to date.

The tour will see the band perform in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane this July, where they’ll be supported by Japanese electronicore outfit Crossfaith; Bring Me The Horizon’s recent Aussie tour supports, While She Sleeps; and Sydney band Polaris.

The tour announcement comes as In Hearts Wake reveal a new song called ‘Warcry’ (below), which is being billed as “a preview of what the Byron Bay crew are currently working on”.

“A Warcry is made to rally those for battle or to gather participants together for a campaign,” say the band.

“The current systems in place are violently pitting us against each other, propelling our species towards our own extinction. This track is a call to come together, to unite peacefully against the forces that are currently destroying life on Earth and the resources that support it. The time is now.

“The words of the verse are the vision of a Seer, who speaks of a dark and horrific future to come. The chorus defies this nihilistic prophesy outright. We, the New Generation, will not idly sit back and watch the abuse of our world. If we do not take timely action, then we are passively contributing to the Seer’s bleak prediction.

“Our inaction is part of the problem; let us answer the Warcry and become part of the solution. What kind of a world do you wish for tomorrow – to ensure a tomorrow…”

In December last year In Hearts Wake announced that drummer Conor Ward had joined the band, following the sudden departure of founding drummer Caleb Burton.
